Description

The incarnation is a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith. However, we have too often failed to appreciate the full ramifications of this event. This series seeks to explore its radical implications for rethinking the whole nature of God's relationship to humanity. The doctrine of creation, revelation, salvation, worship and the life of the church, and ethics are all explored in its light. The listener will gain a clearer understanding of the Christian frame of reference as it is shaped and sustained by this event and come to a fuller appreciation of its relevance for the challenges of contemporary life and witness.
